McCormick Care Group – COVID-19 Update

Friday, December 17, 2021

This is a McCormick Care Group COVID-19 Update for Friday, December 17, 2021. 

Unfortunately, we received an additional positive staff result today. Based on the latest information, the timelines have shifted in regards to isolation requirements for the residents, which continue to evolve.

  • Evergreen Walk – Provided there are no resident or staff cases identified from the PCR testing completed today, the isolation would end on December 25, 2021.
  • Memory Lane – Provided there are no additional staff or resident cases identified from additional PCR testing, the isolation would end on December 27, 2021.

Both home areas remain in outbreak status. All residents in Evergreen Walk and Memory Lane are being isolated in their rooms. As a reminder, when in outbreak, residents are permitted to have one essential caregiver visitor at a time.  Essential caregivers must wear full droplet/contact precautions, including a mask, eye protection, a gown, and gloves in order to enter the home area.

With 3,124 COVID-19 cases reported in the province today, please stay safe.
